Watching previously presented NCDA webinars offers a convenient way to earn CEs (at a low fee of $35 for 1 contact hour). The Webinar Package offers CEs for watching a set of webinars at a discounted price. Watch 1, 2, or 3 webinars, then click on the link to register for CEs and obtain a discount on the purchase of your CEs.

A new webinar is scheduled for August 23, 2022: "Tried and True or Something New: A Panel Discussion Facilitated by Courtney Warnsman." Panel members include: Monique C. Johnson, Brandi R. Muñoz, Jim Peacock, and Karol Taylor. The panelists will share their favorite go-to career resources. There will be something for everyone including assessments, administrative/organizational tools, federal job search sources on social media, and DEI resources. Participants will benefit from reminders of different ways to use the “tried and true” as well as to learn “something new”.
